About Creativo Loft
Specializing in small weddings, elopements, and intimate private parties, Creativo Loft is a genuinely unique option for events in Chicago.
Located geographically in the heart of Chicago at the intersection of Chicago Ave & Milwaukee Ave., Creativo Loft is a 3000 s.f. creative loft space located on the top floor of the historic Baer’s Hall building, which dates back to 1887. The original hard wood floors and original 16-ft tall tin ceilings give our space inherent vintage and rustic accents, but the raw space itself is a blank canvass for any event style … vintage, modern, romantic, offbeat, etc. We have 12 giant windows facing north-east. They give us an abundance of natural daylight with fantastic city views of the River North downtown area, including the landmark John Hancock Building on Michigan Ave., about 2 miles east from Creativo Loft.
We are also more than just a venue. We also offer all-inclusive service package options, which are popular with the vast majority of our couples who are looking for an all-in-one solution for their wedding or party planning.
What does that mean specifically? Renting our venue comes with many built-in perks, including our in-house collection of decorations and amenities. Venue owners Giorgio and Sarah have over 40 years combined experience as event professionals. Giorgio is a world-class commercial and wedding photographer, and is known to make great coffee, pesto sauce, and goofy jokes. Sarah manages our venue and events, officiates ceremonies, does graphic design and photography, and is good at knowing where to find everything you like on your pin board. We have a fantastic network of seasoned event professionals including a wide variety of caterers, florists, bakers, DJs, musicians, lighting, artisans and other talented colleagues. Our venue service packages are specialized to meet the needs of smaller weddings and events, and customized to our clients’ individual style and preferences.
Our maximum capacity for weddings with banquet seating is 74, which includes room for dancing. For a banquet reception without dancing, we can seat up to 84. For standing cocktail parties our maximum standing-room capacity is 120.
With our one-of-a-kind space, combined with our service capabilities, we believe that Creativo Loft offers a special option in Chicago for couples planning small weddings and elopements.
